Capstone is a results-driven, collaborative culture focused on excellence that is delivered through the collective efforts of everyone on our team. That’s why we challenge and support each other to grow; to grow our skills, broaden our knowledge, expand our horizons, and think differently. Our team is our most important asset and investment.
“There's a lot of information sharing here. There is deep expertise across the firm, and people are constantly talking to each other. They are open to collaboration on ideas and information.”
What drives us.
To anticipate and harness the complexities of global derivatives markets to create opportunities for our clients, team and industry.
To provoke the evolution of asset management through open and continuous collaboration.
We see the world differently.
Where others fear instability, we find opportunity.
“Our clients are not only looking for returns, they are looking for information in and around volatility strategy across asset classes.”
Anticipate change and adapt proactively to maintain a sustainable advantage.
“You can’t be innovative if you don’t fail. We encourage people to own their failures so that we can learn from them, and collectively recover from them.”
Promote a results-driven work ethic that seeks out and nurtures the exceptional.
“Everybody here has seen a crash or two or three. We’ve been through it. There's a lot of experience here.”
Lead through open and continuous collaboration with our team, clients and industry.
“We're open because that's how much we believe in volatility; we want to help develop the industry. We're very transparent and believe in the product, not just our approach.”
Maintain exceptional standards and support one another to achieve them.
“We encourage people to own their mistakes. Many people associate mistakes with weakness, but I believe that owning and understanding them takes the stress out of your position and is very liberating.”
Build trust by delivering results with objectivity and humility.
“We acknowledge that we are going to make mistakes, but we have the humility to take pause, deeply analyze and learn from those mistakes, and that is a key driver to our success.”
Education and opportunity.
We look for employees who have the skills and capabilities to be successful in their role and expand their impact throughout the organization. As new employees onboard, they are guided through their acclimation to ensure an understanding of their role and career trajectory and to set them on a path for success. Our employee training and development opportunities seek to challenge employees to grow their skills, think differently, broaden their knowledge and expand their horizons.
We support a learning journey by bringing in a variety of speakers, providing access to experienced industry professionals, sourcing differentiated development programs and offering training platforms to pursue individual interests. We invest in managers to equip them with the tools to support employees as they navigate through their jobs, teams and careers at Capstone, and ensure their experiences are mutually fulfilling.
“I want everyone at Capstone to understand that they have a large organization filled with exceptional people who are here to support them.”
At Capstone, exploring risk and its associated benefits is a part of our DNA. Our Captivate series of lectures and discussions aims to bring in leaders from diverse walks of life—who also view the world differently—in order to help us understand their unique approach and learn from their experiences.
“We are a results-driven environment, and we are a results-driven business. That requires a level of excellence to be able to create those results.”
